Scout, though narrating it as an adult, is remembering the events through her childhood self. Children often view things differently than adults. There is a sense of authenticity to Scout that you would not get from an adult. Scout also is very much a reflection of her father except in the scrappy precocious form of a young girl. Her voice is raw, full of fight but also tinged with empathy and a burgeoning wisdom that comes from her father.
